Ready to meet the world’s most paw-some cat? Cool! Say hello to our buddy Gizmo. This guy is the BEST! Got cats? Gizmo likes cats. Got dogs? Gizmo likes those too. Got kids? Gizmo adores them. Enjoy dressing up your pets? Gizmo doesn’t mind clothes. Wanna snuggle? Gizmo is a cuddling super star. This cat is laid back, sweet, loving, practically purrrr-fect. We only have paw-sitive things to tell you about our boy. So how has he been at the shelter for 285 days? People shy away from senior pets. We can’t tell you how many times he has been this close >< to being adopted only to be tuned down because he is 11. Cats can live into their twenties, and Gizmo has many years to live, and a lot of love to give. Help this long term resident find the home he so deserves. He is waiting to meet you at the Hickory shelter. If Gizmo can find his family by close of business this Saturday his adoption fee will be waived, thanks to our sponsor Hendrick Honda of Hickory.

Lexy is a good girl who has been with us for a while, 290 days to be exact. During our floor renovation project she had the opportunity to live with a foster family, who loved and adored her, and shared with us a glimpse of what life with Lexy could look like. Her foster Mom says that Lexy is housebroken, and no stranger to comfort. It didn’t take long for her to find a place on the couch with a blanket and a pillow under her head. She is trustworthy, and can be left out to explore at all times. Lexy does great with kids of all ages, and loves when visitors stop by. Lexy knows a few commands, and will wait for the “ok!” before she will touch her food. Lexy is great on a leash, but is easily distracted by squirrels. This girl is as good as they come and sure to make the perfect addition for the right family. Visit her this week at the Hickory shelter.  If Lexy can find her people by close of business on Saturday her adoption fee will be waived, thanks to our sponsor Hendrick Honda of Hickory.
